The way I'll work with you is informed by an Integrative Perspective.
This means I use a variety of different theories, philosophies and techniques. This can help to broaden the way that we work together, enhancing my ability to adapt to your ever changing developmental needs.

Integrative Counselling draws on mainstream theoretical perspectives, utilising knowledge and skills from different therapies. As Individuals we think, feel and react in different ways.

The exact nature of the work we do will depend on what suits you best.

You may wish to talk about your current situation, for example if you are experiencing stress at work or in your relationship. There may be something in your past that you which to address, for example if you've ever felt depressed.
